Description: Learn how to make a special mitten cuff and mitten based on traditional designs from the Estonian island of Kihnu in the Baltic Sea.  Mary will share with you some of the techniques she learned while on a knitting trip to Estonia, including various braids, textures, and two-color work.  Knitting a mini mitten will give students a chance to learn these techniques first-hand.

Skill Level: Intermediate experience level is recommended for this class.  Students must have two-color knitting experience on dp needles or working with circular needles on sock/mitten-sized knitting and be able to knit with fine yarns. 

Homework: None

Tools Needed: Three colors of sport-weight yarn (Naturespun Sportweight works nicely and black, natural, and red are traditional Kihnu mitten colors) and a set of five size 2 double pointed (dp) needles and one size 3 or 4 needle (used only for cast-on).  Two circular needles or one long circular for magic loop can be used, if preferred.

Materials Fee: None.
